|Argentina OT||-||Netherlands OT|
It wasn´t a perfect job, and of course, he made mistakes. But Marrufo did it OK when he - and his assistants - had to decide in the situations that could have influenced the final result.
When Bakkal scored, the first optical impression was that he was off-side. But he wasn´t, and it was a legal goal and a good decision by Marrufo and his lineman. That assistant - I think it was a man from Jamaica - flagged a lot during the whole match, sometimes OK, sometimes badly. I don´t remember about the other lineman, which means he didn´t do anything terrible.
The American referee didn´t get impressed by a Di Maria fall in the Dutch area, but following FIFA rules, he should have booked him. He was strict when booking Messi - correctly, however - but he allowed the Netherlands´ No. 13 ( Jong-Pin?) to hit and kick the Argentinians midfielders once, twice, three times, and... nothing. Pareja yellow was unquestionable.
Argentina won in the extra-time, but the Dutch could have won twice at the end of the 90 minutes. It´s always difficult for the Argentinians to defeat the Dutch. But Argentina has got Messi, and he made the difference.
